I feel like chicken tonight
On arrival pleasant customer service. Unfortunately though was somehow expecting to see a kettle and microwave in the room but we had to go to the Bar when the restaurant wasn’t open for hot water to make a drink. If you like fish everyday then this is the ideal place to stay. Was ok until the 3rd day, then saw some chicken by the fish👏. Most of the staff would acknowledge you but there’s a few not so nice especially in the restaurant. Breakfast could be a bit more varied same everyday. Not sure if I would return, but location was good easy to get to Old Town just a short walking distant.

Amazing place.
Absolutely loved our stay at Inatel. Breakfast was amazing, but most of all the sea view and location. Room fantastic and beds very comfortable. 100% would stay again. Thankyou Inatel.

Weekend break
Begining of the season so difficult to judge Hotel was empty Bar was very small in comparison to the size of the place Breakfast was the same basic food every morning, hot food very unappetizing It might be better in full season, but not for me

Excellent Value
Offers a great deal and location is good. Very clean, great breakfast. Dinner is hit and miss. Cant go wrong during quiet period but will be noisy during the summer as you can hear through the rooms.
